Are you getting logon failures in the Security event logs?
If so, do you have a service trying to run with the user's credentials?
How about a scheduled task?

I need a free software portable to do this under windows 10.

Something more than running   TREE | CLIP   then pasting into your favorite editor and printing?

T-Clock / Re: T-Clock
« on: March 25, 2021, 08:16 AM »
I had this same issue - program was running but no clock was displayed in the system tray.
To fix it, I right-clicked on the taskbar and chose Taskbar settings, then in the Notification area of the settings window (about 1/2 way down), i clicked "Turn system icons on or off".
Clock was set Off, once I changed it to On, T-Clock display appeared.

Maybe that'll help?

Try CSVEd. I have had it around since version 1.4 and it's now at 2.5.6.
Nice! Man, is this program feature-rich!

I've been using Rons Editor and haven't had any problems other than the limit on rows. My company would rather we use Excel, but Rons was my preference.

Looks like CSVEd might take it's place.   :)

Living Room / Re: Show us the View Outside Your Window
« on: October 20, 2020, 06:51 PM »
This view is outside my front window. Normally I'd see green grass and flowers surrounding the front bush and lush Snow-on-the-Mountain beneath the snow-covered bird bath. But alas, after a day of heavy snow, and in the words of Pixar's Woody, "It's gone, gone... all gone..."
Welcome to Billings, Montana, USA.

JGPaiva's GridMove and Ahk Tools / Re: Triple monitor (coded)
« on: October 13, 2020, 10:30 AM »
Do you have more information on what this attachment and post is all about?
Is this useful for others? If so, what functionality does it provide?

[Edit]
ahh, gridmove app. (pays to read backwards!  :-[ )

Haven't used it in quite a long time, but maybe TinyTask would be worth looking into?
The author's website doesn't exist any longer but i found copies on multiple download sites by searching for "tinytask".

Save to a .ps1 file and run
Holy smoke! This is fabulous - does what I was looking for and... the code... so dang compact!
Very nice, thank you!

I cheated worked smarter, not harder
FTFY

Not only got a tool I can use, but got an education as well!
Turned out to be a pretty good Monday.  :P

Enjoy the credit. Credit and half?   :Thmbsup:

Post New Requests Here / Idea: Task Manager "Lite"
« on: May 16, 2020, 07:06 PM »
For various reasons, we dont want to give access to TASKMGR.EXE on server sessions, but there are times when we do want them to be able to end a process that's frozen.

I'd like to present the user a prompt where they could key a username and/or a process name, showing results similar to what's found when TASKLIST is run. The user could then select a process and choose to kill it.

Task manager offers too many opportunities for the user to gain access to the desktop of the server or to run programs we'd rather they not have.

I considered using PowerShell to prompt the user, run tasklist with output to CSV format, then taking that to display to the user and using taskkill.Exe to end the selected program. Unfortunately, I've never written a script even REMOTELY similar to this!

There were 4 of us and no prizes.  :-[

I REALLY hope you do this again.

I was going to join, but I'd just gotten out of the shower after working outside.
There ain't NOBODY wanna see me without a shirt  :'( and I was too hot and too lazy to put one on.

BUT - would love to know how it went.
Next time, I'll wear a shirt for sure!  ;D

I think this is a TERRIFIC idea, btw!

I'm a long-time licensed user of ManicTime and like it a LOT.
Looks like this might be an application with a similar function? 

I might be interested in giving a run for you, but as far as long-term use, i don't see how it's an improvement over what I'm already using?
Maybe I'm not aware of the full capabilities?

I like to keep up to date on the latest news happenings and am using Desktop Ticker on my PC, but I'm looking for something similar for my iPhone.

Basically I'd like to be able to select my news sources and have the top stories displayed, rotating every "X" number of seconds, updating as new stories are made available. I thought of an RSS reader, but I don't know of any on the iPhone that automatically update their display.

Anybody have a suggestion?

Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sChecklist
« on: October 24, 2019, 10:18 AM »
Love the program - a daily staple in my list of startup programs.

Is it possible to change the background colors of both the checklists and entries? And of course, with dark background, I'd want a lighter color font as well.   :)
I couldn't find anything in the options and no color choices on the font selection screen.

If this "feature" is still bothering you, try this Autohotkey script.

Thanks, i think i'll store this for future reference.

I was able to finally get Evernote to open on screen by using Skrommel's WinWarden2 program.
 ;D Too funny. While getting the link for this script, I see YOU were the driving force behind WinWarden!  Small world.

What Wraith said, but when you do that use regmon or something like it to track any registry writes that it is doing. Personally I would think it's something in HKCU\Software\Evernote or wherever.

Heh - actually I just ran across this page that purports to list all of Evernote's registry settings, maybe there is a clue there.

Also, this page for a utility that "is a small app that allows you to change some of Evernote's more useful, but hidden Regsitry settings".

REGMON. That's a good idea - thanks for the tip, i'll check that out.
I perused the links and, while they've got some good information, they both are a bit dated unfortunately. Evernote's changed their UI quite a bit since v1.0.

You might try after you get it positioned on the screen to close it (completely, including the taskbar notification icon) and then re-open it.  It's likely that they're saving the position on exit, and if you reboot without closing, it might not go through that procedure.

Yeah, that works until the next reboot. I've exited ALL apps and rebooted, this one is the stubborn app that refuses to obey the "rules".

General Software Discussion / Window offscreen at startup
« on: September 12, 2019, 03:54 PM »
My Evernote window shows up offscreen every stinkin' time i reboot.  >:(
I've moved and resized the window, shut down the application and then started it up again and it retains previous location/size, as one would expect.
BUT - when I reboot the desktop, i see the icon in the task bar and the window is once again, offscreen.

I used AutoHotkey's Window Spy to see that the window's X-Y coordinates are set to -32000 & -32000.  Searching the registry for "-32000" results in these results:

Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppUserModelId\Microsoft.Windows.ParentalControls (also in HKLM)
 - DisplayName = @%SystemRoot%\system32\WpcRefreshTask.dll,-32000

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\AsyncMac (also in HKLM)
 - Description (also DisplayName) = @%systemroot%\system32\mprmsg.dll,-32000

Details:
OS = Windows 10 1703 build 15063.1746
3 monitors, left-most is primary, all are set to 1920x1080.

Anyone have any trouble-shooting ideas for getting my window to appear on one of my monitors after rebooting?

DC Website Help and Extras / Handling spam on forum
« on: August 14, 2019, 12:23 PM »
I hate to say it, but I still feel that we should employ a system like myspace does with their groups, new members have to be members a full week before being allowed to post ANYTHING.  This ensures they are serious about the forum and keeps out most spammers, also gets them well acquainted with the rules and procedures before they can break them....
Only problem is that it hampers legitimate new users from requesting help for their issue.
     "I need help, and I need it NOW!"

 :)
Perhaps an approval from a moderator might work? there'd be some back-and-forth interaction to ensure the poster was valid?

(Also, i'm kind of surprised we're adding this to an ancient thread ?)

^ Pandoc needs 3'rd party application, before it can create pdf.
Yeah, I'm running the Tex Live Installer now, even as we speak.  Holy smoke, about 1/3 of the way through install and it's only been...  let's see... an hour and 5 minutes!   :huh: 
I don't think I've EVER seen an install take this long!

Developer's Corner / Looking for freeware command line text to PDF
« on: August 02, 2019, 01:54 PM »
I found TXT2PDF referenced in a couple places, including this DonationCoder post, and I tried pulling a copy from VeryPDF.com, but was blocked (unsafe?).

Does anyone have experience with a freeware CLI text-to-PDF converter that can be run from a Windows batch script? And a URL to a "safe" download would be fab!

Just an FYI... Malwarebytes stopped triggering on your site.  :Thmbsup:

Still being blocked by Barracuda here.
